To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

NEW ORLEANS STYLE IN FRISCO
Great weekend....Great weekend!
What a fabulous way to celebrate
Spicy Bloody Mary's and Mimosa's!
Frisco is a booming area here in Texas!
We discovered yet another bistro which is
now a family favorite!
This is how we roll....
a dozen fresh gulf oysters!
Add fresh lemon.....horseradish, Tabasco
Love the decor of this restaurant..
it has just the right touch of New Orleans elegance
I am always impressed with black linen and chandeliers!
The wait staff was articulate, knowledgeable, attentive and looked sharp
in matching attire!
Also, it was a quiet atmosphere.....cannot wait
to return for date night!
The menu was just lovely and there were SO many
entree's I wanted to try....
but since I am working on my "beach body"
I selected this fresh, amazing salad!
Greg gave me a taste of these divine Gouda Grits!!!
Oh heavenly days......
The darling also let me try some of his Shrimp Po'Boy...
they got the bread just right!
If you have ever had a true New Orleans Po'Boy,
you know what I'm talking about!
This is going to a hot spot in the spring....
Saturday however, was a cold, rainy and foggy day here in Texas!
Next time, we are not going to pass up the
Bread Pudding...but we wanted to try
the cupcake cafe right next door!
Oh baby, baby......
Red Velvet, Peanut Butter,
German Chocolate and the Great Divide!
BoBo was allowed back at our house
since we wanted to ensure Mae Mobley
was doing well...
it went great!
He has settled alot and they did not have one time
of needing an intervention!
She did spend most of her time in our bedroom
he was very well behaved!
Sunday morning was meant for a good breakfast!
Homemade Sour Cream Blueberry Muffins!
Add some fluffy scrambled eggs and you're good to go!
Yes, Mae...you have the run of the house once again!
They are addicting....
Greg and Jenn helped the darling finish the puzzle
I LOVE THIS!
I just have to frame it!!!
It makes me happy just looking at it!
I think we have a theme going on here!
Are you looking forward to The Inauguration festivities this Friday?
I most certainly am!!!
And listen....see the words above?
Hope, kindness and embracing a new President and First Family
can be a wonderful thing for OUR United States of America!
